an-other


Hi, I'm Krishna.

Here you'll see my inane ramblings mingled with a lot of things I like (family, friends, living things in general, philosophy, books, tea, art, music, religions of all kinds, surfing, baking, puns, and more).

Reading. Ethel Leontine Gabain (French-English, 1883-1950). Oil on canvas. Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
For financial reasons and due to a fall in the print market, Gabain moved over to painting with oils. She sent her first oil painting, Zinnias, to the R.A. in 1927, where it was well received. She also painted a number of landscapes in oils.

"Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken."

— William Shakespeare (via observando)

sometimes people who are sad dont always need the “it gets better talk”

sometimes people just want to hear “you are sad, you are trying your best, and it’s okay. you’re okay and you’re alive and that’s a big accomplishment”

because i know for myself unconditional optimism gets really fucking annoying. sometimes i just want to be sad and have it be okay that im sad.

don’t make me feel weirder than i already do in my own skin.
